  • Mon, 08 Aug 2022 21:25:21 +0000: Watford’s Sarr scores from 60 yards but misses penalty in draw at West Brom - Championship | The Guardian

    Ismaïla Sarr’s wonder goal was described as “a moment of genius” by Watford head coach Rob Edwards after they drew 1-1 at West Brom.

    Sarr was Watford’s hero and villain – scoring a goal reminiscent of David Beckham’s strike at Wimbledon in 1996 before missing a penalty. The 24-year-old Senegal forward gave Edwards’ side a 12th-minute lead with a spectacular chip from almost 60 yards out, before Karlan Grant equalised in first half stoppage time. But Sarr missed a 73rd-minute penalty as Albion controlled the game and should have won at a canter.

  • Sat, 06 Aug 2022 14:04:53 +0000: Dean Smith rails at ‘scandalous decision’ after Norwich frustrated by Wigan - Championship | The Guardian

    Dean Smith railed against referee Matt Donohue after Norwich’s sluggish start to the Championship campaign continued with a 1-1 draw against newly promoted Wigan.

    Smarting from an opening-day defeat at Cardiff, Norwich dominated for long periods in the East Anglian sunshine but were unable to make their superiority count. Max Aarons had cancelled out James McClean’s opener and was taken out by a strong challenge from Tom Naylor as he went looking for his second goal of the game. Naylor got the ball but Smith felt the challenge was overzealous.
